Maintaining outdoor timber and decks
Patios and timber decks are great for extending your living area and are the ideal space for entertaining and relaxing. They create a transition area between your home and garden and give you a comfortable space to enjoy the outdoors. Exposed timbers can suffer from weathering. Here we’ll show the easy way to keep your outdoor timbers and decking well maintained and looking good.
- Maintain timber decking. Exposed timber decking can cop a real beating from extreme heat, sunlight and rain, leading to weathering, rotting and loosening of boards around fastenings. In no time there can be loose boards and popping nails. The standard fix is to re-nail or even replace boards. That will last a year or so and the whole process starts again. Now, if you use Selleys Liquid Nails Waterproof when you fasten deck boards to the joists, you’ll break the cycle because the strong bond stops movement and wear. The product uses polyurethane technology and expands while it sets to fill gaps and reduce movement. It makes decks amazingly tight and quiet. All you need is a little squirt of Liquid Nail Waterproof between the decking and the frame, to eliminate the unwanted movement of timber in any flooring or decking job
